The article analyzes the building of the former County House in Levoča (1807-1826) by architect Anton Povolný. The Classicist style quality present in its facade - extraordinary regarding the date of origin, exceeding the surrounding context and bearing witness to the local orientation to Germany - conceals the traditional Late Baroque interior layout bearing witness to the official state power of the Austrian Monarchy. The preference of the Classicist style manifested a relative independence of city representatives from the centre.
